Whatever Matt Feels Like Posting

This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!

[sticky post] List of my userpics by order added @ 01:48 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: productive
Soundtrack: I typed some of my userpic keywords into Dunc's Algomusic IIIb to see what randomized songs I'd get

As I've mentioned a while back, I plan on replacing some of my userpics with more legible versions. (even though I've procrastinated that for probably at least a year now...)

Since I knew that doing that will cause me to lose track of what order I added my userpics, I kept a list of my userpics in my profile in order added - but I'm starting to run out of room on my profile now, so I moved it here and reformatted it into a table that hopefully looks better than the old layout.

Note that this excludes the following:
- Old versions of these userpics
- Alternate versions of some of these that I made to protest SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/etc. a few years ago

Here they are!Collapse )

Glossary of Matt1993isms @ 09:03 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: tired tired
Soundtrack: Dido - Sand in My Shoes

I finally got around to updating this glossary and moving it to a sticky post so that it wouldn't clutter up my profile and I could have LJ-cuts to jump to certain sections!

Although the whole point of these multiple LJ-cuts is for ease of navigation (i.e. if I reference a Matt1993ism in the definition of a Matt1993ism in a different section, I'd link to the proper section), I haven't had the time to actually go through and add all these links, so stay tuned for that. I also thought about adding artwork for certain entries *cough*/crazymegavideo/*cough*, so stay tuned for that too. :)

As I said in the old glossary, if you spot a Matt1993ism I used that I haven't defined here, or if FoxReplace messes up the "pucker up because it's time for lunch" entry again, etc., please let me know :)

EDIT: Added some more Matt1993isms and tags, but still need to add the links and artwork. I'm also pretty sure there was another Matt1993ism that I still forgot to add...

Right now I am annoyingly: accomplished

I'm finally up to 600 entries fixed!

Out of 1,240...

And it took a while to even get this far... you might've even forgotten I was spending a lot of time fixing everything that's messed up in my LJ and DW entries.

But hey, I'm almost halfway done! :)

PROGRESS? @ 08:44 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: accomplished... sorta

YES! I'm FINALLY done fixing all of my entries in 2007-2010! (Hopefully...)

Of course, I still have 2011 to at least 2017 to fix if I ever want to get my peace of mind back...

It took me five months just to fix the 2007-2010 entries (or more like 2009-2010 because there weren't many before that)... do any of you even remember that I decided last September to finally start working on fixing everything that was messed up in my entries?


In other news, last week I somehow managed to forget to bring my phone to work on Friday... I never forget my phone! :(

Moya's Space Log - now with at least 3.4% less cringe!! @ 07:59 am

Right now I am annoyingly: accomplished
Soundtrack: SMG2 - Starship Mario and Moya Brennan - Merry-Go-Round at the same time

Haven't you always wondered what a certain bizarre unfinished Super Mario Galaxy 2 / Enya / Moya Brennan crossover I wrote when I was 17 would've been like if I hadn't been 17 when I wrote it, but it was still just as unfinished?

Probably not, because most of you hadn't even met me yet when I wrote Moya's Space Log.


If you weren't friends with me in November 2010 and have not read the FAQ in my profile, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, so I'll link to an entry that'll hopefully explain it... basically, a series of inside jokes and my thoughts while writing an entry about what I got for my birthday somehow led to me attempting to write a silly fanfiction for NaNoWriMo that year where Mario, Luigi, and Enya and Moya Brennan all adventure together in Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Moya's always questioning the logic of Mario games while Enya simply accepts it.

But then I didn't finish writing it past the first mission of SMG2. And I never get around to finishing it for at least seven years despite occasionally promising to. I don't think that'll change anytime soon since there's still so many other things on my to-do list (that is probably even longer by now than Moya's Space Log would be if I had completed it).


BUT! As I said in a friends-only entry recently, I finally got around to something else I've been meaning to do for years - I combined all I've written so far of Moya's Space Log into one entry and revised it all again to change the things I really wish I'd written differently!


Now after seven years, you can FINALLY read what I've written so far of Moya's Space Log while only sometimes cringing at my 17-year-old self's poor choices of wording, sense of humor, or sense of... anything else!

This explanation of some of the stuff I changed turned out longer than I expected...Collapse )


Here we go!

Slightly de-cringed edition of Moya’s Space Log under the cut!Collapse )

Miiverse Backup Twuednesday: Posts from 12/25/2012 @ 09:51 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: nostalgic nostalgic
Soundtrack: New Super Mario Bros. U soundtrack - Snow (Baby Yoshi)

You know how I decided at the last minute (or so) to request a backup of my Miiverse posts before Miiverse shut down? The backup arrived on December 4, and shortly after that I decided I might as well actually DO something with my Miiverse posts: archive them on LiiveJournal and DriimWidth! yeah okay that was too much of a stretch for even Wii Fit Trainer to handle

But I didn't get around to doing so until now when I had the idea of archiving just a few posts at a time.

I can't guarantee I'll stick to an update schedule, but my plan is that every week, on Tuesday or Wednesday (for two reasons: I thought of this plan on a Tuesday, and Miiverse was shut down at a time that for me was midnight between a Tuesday and a Wednesday), I'll post an entry with a few of my Miiverse posts in it, starting from my first posts ever and going in chronological order.

(Currently I'm planning on it being five posts at a time except whenever posting four or six instead better separates my archive into easy-to-describe time periods like "12/25/2012" or "July 2014". Though I might group all Miiverse posts from the same day together even if there's a lot of them, as opposed to "all Miiverse posts from MM/DD/201Y before HH:00" or something one week and "...MM/DD/201Y after HH:00" the next week. I dunno yet.)

LJezzacotta (or DWezzacotta) meme! @ 05:00 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: sleepy sleepy

Being obsessed with a) mezzacotta, the randomly generated webcomic that's (retroactively) been around since 9999999999999 BC, and b) nerdy math-related stuff, I thought of an idea for a LJ/DW meme that incorporates both! Back in July or so. Why didn't I post it until now? For that matter, I'm surprised I didn't think of this meme before July 2017.

Anyway...

1) Look at the mezzacotta strip from your birthdate:
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=1993-07-14

2) Look at the strip(s) from the day you joined LJ and/or DW and/or any other blogging site you use regularly - if you don't know when that is, you can go to your profile and find out (at least for LJ and DW):
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=2007-08-19 (LJ)
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=2017-05-13 (DW)

3) Optionally, also look at the strip(s) from any other dates that are significant to you!
I'll skip this step, though - while there are many other dates that are significant to me for whatever reason, I think I'll just use my birthdate and the dates I joined LJ/DW for this.

4) Put in the same dates from steps 1-3 again but with AD changed to BC. You can do this just by putting a minus sign before the year in the URL:
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-1993-07-14
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-2007-08-19
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-2017-05-13

5) Put in the dates from steps 1-4 again, but replace the years with the last two digits of them:
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=93-07-14
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=7-08-19
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=17-05-13 (...so is he going to show me or not? :) )
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-93-07-14
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-7-08-19 (A hair restorer on leeches?)
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-17-05-13 (I guess a penny isn't enough.)

6) Now take the dates from steps 1-3 and replace the year with your LJ and/or DW (and/or other blogging site) user ID! On LJ and DW at least, that's also on your profile.
(Any time I say to replace the year with a number that isn't a year like your user ID, do this for both BC and AD if the AD version exists [i.e. the number is between 1 and the current year]. If it doesn't - which it won't 99.9% of the time - then just use BC.)
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-13627499-07-14
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-13627499-08-19 (I'd say that's changing focus more than just "a bit". :P )
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-13627499-05-13 (Yes, I even combined my LJ user ID with the date I joined DW and vice versa. Because that makes a lot more sense than the strip I got by doing so!)
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-3192525-07-14
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-3192525-08-19
http://mezzacotta.net/archive.php?date=-3192525-05-13 (The first panel of this one is the best part.)

these next few are so mathy, they're under a cutCollapse )


If any of these methods gives you an invalid date:
Year with leading zeroes - remove the leading zeroes.
Year is 0 - use 9999999999999 BC (13 nines), 1 BC, and/or 1 AD instead. Or, if this happens in step 5, replacing it with 100 BC/AD makes sense too.
February 29 in a year that doesn't have one - use February 28 and/or March 1 of that year instead.

2017 Wordle Year in Review @ 06:22 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: sleepy sleepy
Soundtrack: SSB4 - All-Star Rest Area and SMG2 - Final Bowser at the same time

Woefully late in posting this, but:

----

Go to Wordle and...

1) Paste in all entries you posted in January 2017 and make a Wordle configured any way you like
2) Paste in all entries you posted in February 2017 and make another Wordle configured any way you like
...
12) Paste in all entries you posted in December 2017 and make another Wordle configured any way you like
13) Make a Wordle out of your entries from ALL months of 2017, configured any way you like

Then post all of these Wordles to your LiveJournal and/or DreamWidth and/or whatever other blogging site(s) you're on!


You may do steps 1 - 12 only or step 13 only if you prefer.

It's up to you if you include subject lines, comments, community entries, friends-only entries, music tags, location tags, etc., and it's up to you whether you post your Wordles in a public or friends-only entry. Anything else I didn't think of is probably optional as well.

And if you're on more than one journal site (in this example, LJ and DW), you may do this for your LJ entries only, your DW entries only, your entries on both sites combined, all of the above - whichever. And you may post it to only one site or the other, or to both - whichever you prefer.

----

Personally I opted to do this for my LJ and DW entries separately AND combined, and post all three versions of each to both LJ and DW. Which means this took about six times as long to make as it usually does...

Left: LJ only
Center: LJ+DW combined
Right: DW only

You can also tell because I tried to skew the colors of the LJ-only ones towards LJ-blue and away from DW-red/pink, and vice versa for the DW-only ones. Looking at how some of the color schemes turned out, though, I might need to adjust my algorithm before my 2018 Wordle Year in Review...

Wordles under the cut!Collapse )

Oh, and this year, I thought of a little word search game I could add onto this meme! (you don't have to make a little game like this if you make your own Wordle Year in Review though)

So, uh... Apparently level 10 of Stinkoman 20X6 is finally being made this year after a 12-year hiatus.

Since I was never good at Stinkoman 20X6, my reaction to this is:

25% "Cool, level 10 is finally being released!"
75% "Yet ANOTHER thing I thought would never happen is apparently happening BEFORE I get caught up on all the things I'm trying to catch up on?? And probably before all my entries look presentable again on both LJ and DW?? It just keeps getting more and more apparent how much of a procrastinator I am every year..."

Super Mario Maker Crash Course Minus Yamamura! @ 10:37 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: weird weird
Soundtrack: Super Mario Maker soundtrack - SMB Castle (edit mode)

Super Mario Maker Crash Course Minus Yamamura is a comic dedicated to removing Yamamura from the Super Mario Maker Crash Course comic in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Ms. Mary O. Mashiko. It is a journey deep into the mind of a manual guide who has become her own worst critic, desperately trying to appear optimistic while secretly fighting a losing battle against anxiety, self-hatred, and fear of rejection in an isolated... video game manual?


So, uh... This is a little Garfield Minus Garfield-esque idea I thought of about two years ago, back when the Super Mario Maker Crash Course comics were new.

brief history of this idea and the two places I was thinking about using it in eventually, but didn’tCollapse )

Anyway, after two years, my patience has finally run out... I wanted SO BADLY to show that removing Yamamura has about the same effect on Mary O. that removing Garfield has on Jon, I decided I'm not gonna save it for PrtSc Land or iToons after all - I'd just make it NOW and post it here, while there's still at least a chance that no one else has made something similar already.

Though I'm probably safe, because really, has ANYONE else ever been obsessed enough with Mary O. to make this? Does anyone else even know who she IS? :P


Original strip: Super Mario Maker Crash Course Episode 1

Super Mario Maker Crash Course Minus Yamamura:





(And no, I'm not going to do this with the other episodes of the comic - it probably only works with the first one, and even then only because I cheated a little and added an extra line for Mary O. :) )

Happy New Year, everyone! And happy 10,000,000,002,016th anniversary, mezzacotta! ;)
